Help rebuild the historic Strimples Mill

Donation protected
Dear Friends and Community,

We are reaching out to you today with a heartfelt appeal to help preserve a piece of our local heritage and support sustainable agriculture. Strimples Mill, established around 1850, stands as a testament to our rich past, and we envision a future where it thrives once again, alongside a small organic farm, Simple Strimple Farm.

Why is this important? First and foremost, the preservation of our sawmill is crucial to safeguarding our community's history. This magnificent structure has witnessed generations of craftsmanship, witnessed the growth of our community, and played an integral role in our development. By preserving it, we can ensure that future generations have a tangible link to our history.

Simultaneously, we aim to grow a small organic farm adjacent to the sawmill. Organic farming promotes sustainable practices, responsible land stewardship, and the provision of healthy, chemical-free produce to our community. By cultivating our organic vegetables and meat, we can provide residents with nutritious options while reducing our carbon footprint.

To make this dream a reality, we need your support. Our initial goal is to raise $200,000, which will be used for essential renovations and repairs to the sawmill, including structural preservation, updating equipment, and ensuring its safety. Additionally, we aim to secure the necessary materials to grow our organic farm, including tools, irrigation systems, and fencing.

Your generous contributions will help us restore this historical landmark to its former glory, preserving our shared heritage and creating a sustainable future. Donations of any amount are immensely valuable and greatly appreciated. In recognition of your support, we will acknowledge your contribution on a commemorative plaque displayed prominently on the sawmill premises, and be a part of our local history by investing in our future.

Let's come together as a community to honor our past and cultivate a sustainable future. Donate today to our GoFundMe campaign, share it with friends and family, and spread the word on social media. Together, we can ensure the legacy of our historic sawmill and establish a thriving organic farm that nourishes our bodies and souls.

Thank you for your support and belief in our vision.
